maybe their ideals are the balls... all up in the air with no solid grounding wink (sorry my atheism slipped out)

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

how do you convey christian ideals through juggling? *starts juggling* I juggle as it was a gift I was given by my lord, Jesus Christ.

OR!

start by throwing and catching one ball by yourself and so on until you reach your limit, then add one more and it all comes crashing down. Grab someone else and your able to juggle more balls than you normally can. This is a metaphor. We try to juggle as much into our lives as we can by ourselves, but we need our Lord to fully reach our potential.



So it really is just your thoughts, you cant actually tell a story through juggling. Anything can be a metaphor for some part of the bible. So really your no different from the rest of us that don't need to be under a certain umbrella (being a christian) to perfom. I juggle and twirl and i don't see it as a god given gift. Levitation or walking on water would be a god given gift. But then again thats debateable whether that really happened either or was just a metaphor of the situation!! Sorry had to rant!!!

I dont know! I was merely trying to think of how it is done in other situations! Sorry for expressing my thoughts on how it might work.

Sorry Hanz i wasn't having a go at you directly. I'm just a little confused as to we're the message comes into it. Do you give a sermon at the same time as juggling/ or is the juggling the sermon. Just very curious. Not trying to attack anyone!!

I don't know.. I may be Christian, but I don't give sermons! um, from different events I go to, the sermons can be before, during or after the props are used, sometimes the props are used heaps, other times only used very minimally. All depends on the preacher/pastor/whatever giving the sermon

where the message is put across (before/after/during/a combination of these) depends on the performer and the particular performance.

juggling lends itself extremely well to imparting many concepts (christian or otherwise) through the use of metaphor.

there are many people use it to teach office workers about management techniques, learning styles, time managment, goal oriented working or even as part of motivational techniques (here's an example smile ).

ubblol this reminds me of a training course I went on they were using juggling as a metaphor for tasks in the work place, they asked me to juggle 3 balls (which I did)

They then randomly threw me another ball saying introduction of an extra task can cause failure, I upset them mightly by catching it carrying on with 4 and saying they should learn to adapt ubblol

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

See that just seems very unusual to me. See i grew up in a very strict christian family and church was certainly not like that. It has been 10 years or more since i walked into a church so things may have changed slightly. Thanks for the explanation Hanz, apologies again for seeming abrupt. hug

Thanks cole for the link. I didn't realise performers were used in these sort of ways. biggrin

Some of the more traditional churches are still only sermon and traditional hymns, the more modern churches involve rock music and circus stuff and whatever you can get your hands on!

It's ok, normally i wouldnt react so badly, I'm just mentally exhausted due to exams, so I reacted badly myself.

But yeah, I went to a thing on how to manage your time and how to revise better and stuff and the guy running the show used juggling.. and it became official.. I cant. But yeah, he used juggling to show how we can juggle our time, but eventually we will fall over due to doing too much
